Common Questions and Answers about Flexeril overdose treatment

flexeril

Increasing dosage, which many patients do without consulting their physicians, can increase dependency risk and can even lead to overdose or death. At the Waismann Method Treatment center we take our patients to Domus Retreat after detoxifcation for a better evaluation on their pain level. We begin treatment with non narcotics and provide yoga, acupunture, massage and other forms on therapies that can help with prescription abstinance and pain control.
It is important to take it as directed because overdose can cause acute liver failure. From the posted information, I derived that your pain is probably from kidney stones. Passing kidney stones can be extremely painful. It is important to hydrate as much as possible to help flush them out. Once the stones pass through, the pain will resolve and there are usually no permanent damages.
I don't want to tell my family and go to rehab not because I'm scared to get in trouble, but because I have lost a brother to a cocain overdose and it would break my family's heart to know another family member is addicted to drugs. The worst part now is that I am so depressed if I don't take any of these pills everyday, I'm not sure how to deal with my emotions without them anymore, I don't event deal with my emotions I just use these drugs to cope with them.
well in order for me to continue with my suboxone treatment i have to have random drug screens at the hospital, which i have to pass, or i will lose my suboxone and doctors help, i would NEVER jeopordize this...i have failed the last 2 drug screens....my first test said i tested positive for marijuana, (i havent smoked in over a year), i tested negative for my klonipin, (which is a benzo and i take daily)...so my doctor requested a retest within 3 days from the first one....
Ambien(Zolpidem) Lunesta(Eszopiclone) Sonata(Zaleplon) Imovane(Zopiclone) Also to be avoided are muscle relaxants like Soma and flexeril. they are not only addictive, but they will make you behave like a monkey and then not remember it later. If you're actively abusing opiates AND taking Benzos/hypnotics/muscle relaxants, then you are basically getting down on your hands and knees and begging for an overdose.
I was weaned off Paxil ( to all never ever stop a anti depressant with out drs help) Now synthroid 1x day,,10mg Xanax for per day, wellbutrin 1 x day,,trasadone 1x at bedtime( its antidepressant w a (great side effect that it will knock you to sleep for a good 6 hrs at least) Tramadol 4xper day and Flexeril 3 x per day psyc meds cause I need them...painmeds cause I dont want to ever take narcotics again ..
HE SAID THAT ONLY A VERY SMALL NUMBER OF SEVERE FIBROS HAVE HANDS THAT CLAW UP FOR 3-4 DAYS STRAIGHT AND I AM ONE OF THEM. If not progressive why has it gotten worse for twenty years? Flexeril, Neurontin, Lyrica and even hydrocodon do not relive pain very much. He even had me take Neurontin and Flexeril together at night and pain bad enough I couldn't sleep well.
And by the time that the individual taking them realizes what is going on, it is too late for them to do anything about it. Ask for something. Flexeril comes to mind, possibly even a benzo (although with ther history, I doubt it) ... show her this forum. I even thought that I might be alone until I came here....It also sounds to me like she could benefit from a minor anti depressant. Its quit common for someone here to need that for 3-4 months while getting back together.
many not intended for sleep but have that side effect of drowsiness....flexeril, phenergan and even benadryl which is over the counter..valerian root works well for some...melatonin did not hit my "sleep spot" either...just made me feel lethargic in the am but no real good sleep... sleep is important to recovery expecially is you work...if you are tired and worn out then you get weaker..
I would make it very clear that the opioid component of the medication is not sufficient at reducing your pain and explain that you can't take more than one hydrocodone as you will overdose on the tylenol. Let me know what your doctor says. If she is still giving you the runaround, ask to be referred to pain management.
A few months ago, I had really bad neck pain on the left, along with a lump behind my ear and had an Xray, which of course was negative. My PCP said it was muscle strain and gave me Flexeril and Iburofen. The pain went away, lump is still there, but of course nothing was on the Xray so the doctor dismissed it as a lymph node. About 6 weeks ago, I noticed my big toe on my left foot was twitching. Moving back and forth by itself.
I mean wait2long how much is ur treatment?
The thing is, we don't know how many she has taken this week with her party friends or what else. How would an overdose of these effect her, then to be without them suddenly? The hospital doesn't want anything to do with her and we find that strasnge but we can't find out what their telling her only what she wants us to know. Help if you can. She is at Vanderbilt Hospital as we speak.I'll check later for your responce.
Went to the er and the do there wrote that I was a narcotic overdose . Triied to tell him what I took but showed no interest . They sent me home. When the dry heaves started one of my kids called my doctor, got his back up and he told us to go to another hospital. There they took all kinds of tests ,the doc said iPad overdosed on benadryl , which is bad, they admitted me and put me on an I V . Oh BTW they observed I was in a lot of pain and gave me a shot of morphine.
The pain was so unbearable, I was having to take morhene, oxycontin, fentinal lollypops, flexeril, valium, and percocet..... everyday... all day long. This only took a file to the sharp edges of the pain. I hated that drug induced stupor it put me in too. My wife, my hero, was able to keep my spirits up. I can laugh about that drug induced stupor now, because I no longer have all those pills. No I am not cured.
If someone is going to put a note in my file specifically to imply that I am a drug addict, shouldn't someone discuss with me the fact that they think I have a substance abuse problem so that I could get treatment? And if they don't want to tell me, is there any valid explanation beyond the SHS director being malicious and a little ticked off that I put her in the position of having to put what was best for her and for SHS over any concern about the patient?
The main thing is to NOT double or change the Dr.s prescription like you did with the Opana. You can possibly overdose, die, or have the things I listed before which is to get flagged by your Dr. for abuse. So...I hope that you will give this medicine a proper amount of time. Another red flag for a Dr. is if you only take a medicine for a few days and say it's not working and want to switch. As I wrote before...each new medicine needs to be tirated up in dosage by the Dr.
Up until 5 years ago, I was on lithium for bipolar disorder (I was diagnosed in 2000), and had a very bad overdose experience in April 2008. I was immediately taken off of the drug and supplanted with another (Seroquel). This all may be purely coincidental.
This was in January. I had tried the other muscle relaxants first, Robaxin, Flexeril, etc. with no results. I gave the new meds 2 weeks each to work then went back to my dr each time to tell him they weren't working (which was the truth) The norco and soma together have allowed me to function, However, here's the issue and it is something I could only admit recently. I've been taking more and more soma and feel I've developed an addiction to them.
It's very easy to overdose. I'm unable to do anything physical, so that leaves my husband and the kids to do most the work for me. I would be more worried if your SO is drinking while taking this medicine. My pain contract say no alcohol, which is fine with me too. I do not drink. My memory is shot too, since my injury. I don't know if it's from the medication or the injury itself and dealing with the pain. I hate it, and I feel stupid over this.
has recently become recognized as an effective detox treatment. I can wholeheartedly attest to it. Do yourself a huge favor, and bring it up with your Doctor. Also recognize the downside in that because this detox has been "easier", the deterrent factor of painful withdrawal isn't there, so the temptation for later relapse is a concern. Good luck, I really hope that I've helped.
And also A very big motivater i am having is that I do not want any records of my drug use-I want to show a realisthic record of regaining control supported by a doctors record of treatment for my addiction .
I was afraid to overdose so I just suffered. Then a friend of mine told me that his wife is also on them and she takes two at a time which helps. So that is what I did. It did help. I told my doc & he said no that is to much and then switched me to morphine. Just tell the doc what you are taking is not doing a thing. See what he says.
I'd really appreciate any ideas on what might be causing this or what I could do in terms of treatment or other tests. Are there other STDs or STIs which could be the culprit that I haven't been tested for? Thanks so much in advance, I'm worried this might never go away.
i think i might add that too, I also have 4 different types of anti-histamines from when i had itching on treatment (which also treat allergies) im wondering if its worth trying one of those... i think one step at a time... i will give a week to 10 days without supplements/herbal tea's and see if it stops or gets better... if not I may add decongestant like you say cos i can hear my breathing in ears when breathing through nose...
Plus, be gentle with yourself. One thing I do that helps me enormously--I learned it over ten years ago in treatment. I say my "gratefuls" every night. Even if I can think of only one thing to be grateful for, I think about it. Most nights I can think of things I have to be grateful for until I fall asleep. If you remember how lucky you are, then you might not experience depression the way some people do. At least that's my experience, strength and hope.
Before I knew my purpose was going to be to help other Mother's who didn't have child care to get to meetings or treatment etc. I still want to do that as well. I have to get clean and stay clean myself first though. I think there are alot of Mommies stuck out there in this addiction because they first of all are embarrassed to ruin their June Cleaver image by admitting it and second they don't have enough help with kids to get treatment.
In fact, stopping a dosage of 80mg/daily for several days and then resuming that dose could result in respiratory depression. This is why methadone is so closely monitored to prevent accidental overdose. Withdrawal from opiates (methadone included) is NOT dangerous, even though you feel terrible. Taking Naproxen, an analgesic NSAID with no opioid component, would be a poor decision as this would not eliminate the withdrawal symptoms.
